This story begins in 1978 when a young entrepreneur named Rick Sharp began producing a line of wood toys in his hometown of Beaman, Iowa. Sharp named his company after the creek that runs through the town and hired local retirees as his production workers. The wide range of handcrafted products he began marketing included carved animals, wooden blocks, trains, cars and other items that eventually developed a national reputation in the gift industry. Today, Wolf Creek products can be found in Japan, Italy, France, England, Australia and Germany, as well as on the sets of such television shows a L.A. Law, the Wonder years, and Mr. Belvedere.

Today, Wolf Creek Products is owned and operated by Marcia Gunderson and Tim Manning, long-time residents of the Eldora area. It is run as a family oriented business, taking advantage of the talents of Marcia's daughters, Jennifer Hackney and Carla Eller, a previous employee of Wolf Creek.
